GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Semiconductors » Semiconductors
Compare:INTC, TSM, BRCM, ARMH, ADI » details
Traded in other countries:LTT.Germany
Lattice Semiconductor was incorporated in Oregon in 1983 and reincorporated in Delaware in 1985. The Company designs, develops and markets programmable logic products and related software. Programmable logic products are widely used semiconductor components that can be configured by end customers as specific logic circuits, enabling shorter design cycle times and reduced development costs. Its end customers are original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") in the communications, industrial and other, consumer and computing end markets. The Company participates in both field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) and programmable logic devices (PLD) markets. FPGA products include LatticeECP2M and LatticeECP3 Low-Power High-Value FPGAs and LatticeXP2 Non-Volatile FPGAs. The LatticeECP FPGA family is designed for customers who need FPGAs with digital signal processing, a significant amount of memory, and high-speed serial communications channels, but do not want to pay the price or power premiums of high-end FPGAs. The LatticeECP2M and LatticeECP3 families are able to serve this low density market due to circuit design choices aimed at achieving lower cost and various architectural enhancements to reduce power consumption. The LatticeXP2 Non-Volatile FPGA family embeds a flash memory block on-chip to shore the program unlike a traditional FPGA that requires an external device to load its application program. This on-chip program memory offers customers several unique benefits. First, as a single chip solution it enables customers to reduce their board size. Second, without the comparatively long time delay caused by loading a program externally, a customer's equipment can start up much more quickly. The PLD products include MachXO2 PLD Family, Lattice iCE Ultra-Low Power PLD Devices, Power Manager, ispClock and Platform Manager Programmable Mixed Signal Devices, and Software Development Tools and Intellectual Property Cores. The Company sells its products directly to end customers through a network of independent manufacturers' representatives and indirectly through a network of independent sell-in and sell-through distributors. The Company competes with Altera Corporation and Xilinx, Inc. in the low end of the FPGA market. It also indirectly competes with other semiconductor companies that provide logic solutions that are not user programmable, or that offer products based on alternative solutions such as ASIC, ASSP, microcontroller, analog and DSP technologies.
